Bill Clinton to Follow Michelle Obama in Stumping for Bennet

The First Lady’s appearance will be a private fundraiser for Sen. Michael Bennet while former President Bill Clinton will stump with Bennet on Monday, October 18, when early voting begins (mail-in ballots go out as early as tomorrow):

Former President Bill Clinton will campaign in Colorado for Sen. Michael Bennet on Oct. 18, following first lady Michelle Obama and leaving open the question whether the popular Democrat is preceding President Barack Obama to Denver.

The Bennet campaign announcement pointedly avoided mentioning that Clinton endorsed Bennet’s primary challenger Andrew Romanoff. […]

Clinton will conduct a late-night rally with Bennet on the day early voting begins. They’ll team up at the newly opened Evie Garrett Dennis Campus of Denver Public Schools, in Green Valley Ranch in northeast Denver.

Michelle Obama is holding a fundraiser for Bennet in the Denver area Thursday. The door appears open for President Obama himself to visit — he has campaigned in other key Democratic senate races in Washington state, Illinois and Wisconsin. But some Democratic strategists still wonder how much more closely Bennet wants to tie himself to a sitting president whose approval ratings are way down.

Ever since his primary victory, Bennet has moved away from Obama, even laying blame on the President for adding to the nation’s debt.
